The Roman Catholic bishop of Colorado Springs has issued a pastoral letter saying that American Catholics should not receive communion if they vote for politicians who defy church teaching by supporting abortion rights, same-sex marriage, euthanasia or stem-cell research....

"Anyone who professes the Catholic faith with his lips while at the same time publicly supporting legislation or candidates that defy God's law makes a mockery of that faith and belies his identity as a Catholic," Bishop Sheridan wrote....

Funny thing -- this bishop apparently never noticed that it was a sin to vote for pro-choice, pro-stem-cell-research candidates until the last year of the last term of Colorado's pro-choice, pro-stem-cell-research senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell.

Who just so happens to be a Republican.
